The Town of Stonewall came into being as an industrial town - with a multinational workforce of men who toiled twelve hours a day, seven days a week in the limestone quarries.
For decades limestone was quarried and processed into quicklime. The quarries are closed now and the abandoned kilns stand at the north end of Main Street, as a silent reminder of the past and the men whose labour helped shape the community.
The Town of Stonewall has developed the area around the kilns into a park. Today Quarry Park covers about 80 acres. It includes a campground, man-made lake, splash pad, play ground, baseball diamonds, walking trails, and the Quarry Park Heritage Arts Centre.
The Quarry also displays the many aspects of limestone production. The history of the site is documented in interpretive signage.
